EX1 Jib Suggestions

Anyone use a jib with the EX1? We're looking for pan/tilt capabilities, as well as lens control. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Nick

I've got a small Seven Jib - Compact XL. It's great, because it's very portable and quick to setup, but it's a camera side operation and not very long.

Take alook at www.porta-jib.com. They have a very nice product I have used for a few years without a hitch.

We use a Seven as well. Quick set up, cheap, easy travel. I would also recommend the Porta-Jib configs as well. Well made, more features, range ( Manual control Monitor Pivot), although I think that can be added to any manual jib.
For remote I'm using a Jimmy Jib. Table top to 18'.

I own a Kessler crane which does a great job. But the motorized pan tilt is not as elegant as the have a look at the advantajib.
